LAN chats and file transfers (freeware)

LAN chats and file transfers
This can be a frustrating subject, particularly when working with two operating systems. Or like I did when one wireless technology was going out and the other phasing in (which come to think of it has been the rule–sort of like Google and everything they produce being forever in beta, like Chrome). To do an actual physical file transfer on a working network somehow adds insult to injury. The program I am going to recommend is in no way recommended for business use. For one thing, I haven’t used it for long enough, and from all I can tell there’s no separate log-in procedure. It could be argued that log-in to the network obviates that, but drive-by and the whole mentality negates that comfortable and easy assumption.

What I’m talking about is BORG chat. Easy search results. Small file, couple of megabytes. XP and Vista compatible, which means it’s compatible to Windows 2000 and will be to Windows 7. If you have anything older you’re asking for trouble. You can’t run some of the programs necessary to ensure your safety–pardon me, the safety of your data; we have indeed become cybernetic citizens willy-nilly.

(I just had to add the “social networking” bit with all the mis-use of the term going on currently.)
